Drives and propellers

Drives and propellers

The sterndrive range consists of four different drives; SX, DPS, DPR and DPH. All of the drives have been developed specifically for their respective engines. The propellers are matched to their drives giving high efficiency at all speeds, safe handling, easy maneuvering – and excellent onboard comfort. Since sterndrives

and propellers have been perfectly matched to each engine, you cannot freely combine them. This is a good thing. It makes you benefit from better performance, lower fuel consumption, higher reliability, longer service life and low levels of noise and vibrations.
